It rained during the morning and part of the afternoon, today. I guess our wet winter is turning into a wet spring! The garden is loving it.
The podiatrist's office called me at 9:15 a.m., to let me know that there were morning appointments available, today, if I preferred that. Well, no, I didn't want a morning appointment, but, I was happy to move my 3:00 p.m. appointment up to 2:00 p.m. I got to the clinic around 1:45 p.m. and the podiatrist's office was closed for lunch! So, I went to the oncologist's office (down the hallway) and picked up a copy of my lab report, as I had forgotten to do that when I was there on Monday.
The podiatry appointment went well. Apparently, the podiatrist I've been seeing will be relocating to San Diego and a new podiatrist will be taking over his patients at the end of the month. I will be seeing this new podiatrist on my next visit in two months' time.
I had kept the last two ground beef and grated zucchini burgers I had made, earlier, to thaw for my dinner, but I didn't feel like eating them as they were; I was wanting soup. So, for dinner, I made "hamburger" soup:
No, it wasn't the version where you brown ground beef and add freshly chopped vegetables and homemade broth. This was the "quick and easy" version! I made some broth with water and chicken bouillon powder, added a can of mixed vegetables, and the ground beef and zucchini burgers, cut up in small pieces. It wasn't the best "homemade" soup I've had, but it was not too bad, considering I really didn't feel like cutting fresh vegetables and cooking. There's more left for tomorrow's lunch or dinner - maybe I'll doctor it up a bit more, tomorrow. I had a fresh orange, that I picked earlier, for dessert.
|Their scent is so wonderful!|
In the evening, I watched news and knitted. Cousin P called, aunt C called, too, and I called friend R to check on her, and texted cousin N to confirm that she is still able to drive me back from my eye examination on Monday (my eyes will be dilated for the examination and I am not supposed to drive myself home, afterwards).
And, I lit some candles:
Today, I am grateful for:
- More rain for the garden
- A safe drive (in the rain) to the clinic and back
- A good appointment with the podiatrist
- Orange blossoms
- Keeping in touch with family and friends
Tomorrow, I need to call or go to the pharmacy to find out what happened to the rest of my medication refill! When I was at the pharmacy, earlier this week, they said they didn't have enough in stock to give me a 30 days supply and gave me enough for three days, saying they'll text me when they fill the rest of the order. Well, the three days are up and I need more medications! Cousin P said to let her know if I am going to the pharmacy as she'd like to go, too.
How was your day? What are your plans for Friday?
